Hi all,

I've been playing ATS for a while now, I played ETS2 for a while before ATS was released. I'm level 10 with a KW W900. I specialize in high value cargo and have two long haul points as well.

In real life I used to actually be a OTR driver. I took a year off from the tech industry when I was younger, got my CDL, and drove for USA Truck for a year. I still have my class A CDL (it's a pain in the arse to get so I'm never switching back). I dropped all my endorsements but picked up a passenger endorsement and now moonlight as a party bus driver on the weekends. I miss OTR trucking, no real boss (dispatch doesn't count), just you, your truck, and an annoying qualcom computer that rarely provides you with the correct information.

I have a World of Trucks account and I do contracts from it but until today I didn't really comprehend how MMORPG this game was. I had no idea VTC existed and honestly I'm still a bit confused by them. I don't have any mods installed, just been playing vanilla ATS,

Anyhow I'm sure I'll see you all around the forums.

Fozzie
